Watchdog questions costs by conservation contractor in Afghanistan


A government watchdog is questioning nearly a quarter of the money spent by the Wildlife Conservation Society in a government-funded project in Afghanistan.

The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction commissioned a financial audit, done by Davis and Associates Certified Public Accountants, that looked at all expenses from the Wildlife Conservation Society between July 1, 2013, and Dec. 30, 2014, in the Improving Livelihoods and Governance through Natural Resource Management in Afghanistan project.
